A CBS News video report looking at the possibility of the Democratic race continuing to play out well after the primaries and caucus are over and what it means for McCain. Essentially he’s got time to raise money and build support, both of which he needs to do desperately. He started by skipping town to Iraq over the weekend.
Here’s the report:
Basically the danger for the Dems is that while Obama and Clinton keep badgering each other, McCain continues presenting himself as “Presidential” by appearing to be above the fray at this point. Everything he does now will be done as the Republican nominee. Therefore, it holds more weight and he’ll get plenty of positive media coverage because he’s not taking much criticism from either Obama or Clinton since their locked battling each other.
This could be the window of time McCain needs to raise cash and get on a more equal footing with his Democratic opponent.
